Pumpkin seeds

Now what are you going to do with all the pumpkin seeds your going to have after you carve that pumpkin? Eat them of course.

Pumpkin seeds are really delicious and there are a lot of ways to prepare them.  Seeds are a great source of nutrition and vitamins.

Before we look at ways to cook them you’ll need to clean your seeds by removing all the yucky stuff and dry them out. However, I have been told that cleaning them takes away some of the yummy taste, so it’s up to you to decide what tastes best.

An easy way to prepare seeds is add some butter into a skillet and sprinkle them with salt and wait till they are a little toasted and take them out of the pan.

Bake

Preheat your oven to 325 degrees. Arrange on a cookie sheet in a single layer. Coat with butter, olive oil or vegetable oil and bake until golden brown. Cook for about 20-30 minutes. Stirring half way through. (time may vary, so check often)

If you would like to add a little spice to your seeds add one of the following:

cayenne pepper

worchester sauce

cinnamon or cinnamon, sugar and salt

chili powder

soy sauce

garlic powder or salt

You can also soak your seeds overnight in salt water for a more tasty treat.
